Day 8/30: INDIA!!

I guess you guys all thought that this was going to be a post about my recent travels. Sorry to disappoint! Being Indian and all, I’m a bit of a stereotypical cricket buff, so I couldn’t resist the opportunity to get tickets for the ICC Champions Trophy matches that are being held in UK this year.

I was trying to get my hands on the much-coveted India vs. Pakistan tickets, however sadly they sold out before I even got into the ticket portal, so I’m having to make do with India vs. South Africa. Not my top choice, however I can’t really complain about seeing the motherland playing a spot of cricket on British soil.

I know the match is a while away, but I’m not the kind of girl to miss an opportunity to wear flag themed attire!

So, me being me, I got a little excited and started googling Indian flag themed dresses. Can you believe that on Google images there is only one dress? It’s not like the Union Jack or the Stars and Stripes, where you can get a range of themed attire. This got me wondering why is this the case and whether it was a cultural thing, so me being the geek that I am I decided to investigate the assistance of detective Google. There’s flag code of India, which is a set of laws that govern the use of the Indian flag!  Bet you guys didn’t know that! There’s a list of  how you can and can’t use the Indian flag! One of the rules is that you are not allowed to wear the flag on clothing that sits below the waist, so no Indian flag themed shorts for me :(.

Anyway it encouraged me to get my creative side out and try and design my own Indian flag themed dress. Yep that’s right, I haven’t sewn anything since my year 9 school days, but that’s right, you’ve heard it, I’m going to design and sew a dress myself and a mighty fine dress it’ll be!!

I can’t decide whether I just have too much time on my hands, whether I’m trying to explore other interests/hobbies or whether this inspiration has come from the complete lack of Indian flag themed attire. I’ve decided to draw some inspiration from current Union Jack themed dresses and am in the process of drawing out various designs! Obviously me being the goody that I am, I’m not going to disrespect the flag rules! Anyway have a gander at these Union Jack dresses that I’m using as inspiration.
